Digipistolary (PED 2014 #22)

Cover Image

I sit here before the glow

to handwrite my love in pixels-

Dancing stylus across the screen

of paper pre-burnt in ways electrical

But in self-referential arrogance of

hipster-asshole "old-new-irony-before-it-was-cool"

Refuge I've lost anything good to feel

          (I'm just left scrawling self-ridicule)

A privelaged smart-ass with a magic pen

Using a future super computer to carve bad cursive script

Hoping that he won't (since this is no letter - not to "Dear Anyone"-

-yet still played w/ epistolary) be tripped

and caught as the massive dick he is.


I imagine - had this actually been a letter-

A simple email would've done me better.



                          A Jackass
